March 22, 2010 1 Comment
Delegations were present from many institutions including Queen Mary’s, Westminster, University College, King’s College, London Met, City and Islington College, Hackney College, CONEL, London College of Fashion and many others. A large group of staff and students from Sussex University joined the march, after their victory over management last week. Other trade unionists also brought their banners and solidarity to the demonstration, including teachers and civil servants. At a rally outside Downing Street, Kevin Courtney, deputy general secretary-elect for the NUT, and Austin Harney from the PCS spoke alongside one of the reinstate “Sussex 6” student occupiers. A petition was then taken to Downing Street condemning the cuts in higher and further education.
